The answer was a resounding ‘yes! ‘ when Prince Harry asked (American girlfriend) Megan Markle to marry him last month.
Harry and Megan had been a couple for sixteen months and are clearly meant for each other : both keen humanitarians and fun, kind individuals. But they had spent a lot of time apart, traveling a lot to see each other : she lived in Toronto, Canada until recently when she moved to Kensington Palace, London, so that they could be together after she finished filming the latest series of legal drama ‘Suits’ in which she has starred for the last seven seasons. Happily for them they will not be apart much longer : Harry and Megan will get to spend Christmas together at Sandringham with the Queen. This is the very first time this has happened. Usually you have to be married to a member of the Royal family before you are invited to spend Christmas with them. But things are changing fast and the royal family seems happy to embrace new ways of thinking and doing things.
We know they will get married in May 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle and there are sure to be thousands of people cheering them on from both America and the UK as they have lots of fans. There will no doubt be lots of speculation about what the dress will look like and who will design it…Also will George and Charlotte be pageboy and flower girl? When Kate and William got married in 2011, the country celebrated by holding thousands of street parties in their neighbourhoods so will happen this time round too?
